    Samsung is about to announce their second generation Galaxy Gear in
    February.

    Will see how much it is improved before making the jump.

    Already, maybe I should return this one for that reason.

    Tony,

    Just to follow-up..

    This is only a rumor, but it sounds like it's going to happen.

    Most will agree that this first smart watch from Samsung is really a beta release.

    The rumor also states that the next watch will have an OLED screen. Possibly curved.

    Really, if you have the chance to return the 1st generation Galaxy to put that money
    aside for the second generation....you will be ahead of the game. I think it would royally
    suck to see a successor released in a few short months and you are left behind.

    If you are not thoroughly satisfied with the Galaxy you own, the decision to return it should
    not be a hard one.

    Welcome. As noted I'm not even sure Smart Watches are a thing I personally want, but I am watching the space as it's an area of fast development that affects others I do care more about.

    That thing looks incredibly uncomfortable. I wouldn't want to wear that continuously when I can just pull the phone out of my pocket. Of course, I do not wear watches or jewelry at all, so smart watches and that phone holder would be totally useless for me.

    His roast was hilarious. Even Bridgette Nielsen made fun of him...and I think those two were still dating... :eek:

    Tony,

    Let's hope the second generation Gear is vastly improved.

    ...and then there's whatever Apple is going to offer later this year.

    The Samsung watch never really interested me. Maybe the next generation will. The Qualcomm looked very interesting though. Seemed a lot more practical and well usable. I checked it out on their website and I really liked the headset it comes with as well as the wireless charging dock.

    Just saw a video review of the Toq. The reviewer did not like the phone.
    Quick glance at other reviews also look somewhat unfavorable.

    Really, I still think we are in the infancy mode of these products. Best to
    see what surfaces later this year.

    Hi, my name is Doug. Will you be my...SQUIRREL!

    Ha ha. Ok. I know it is a dog health monitor. I just couldn't resist since the look of it resembles his collar.

    Frankly, I almost hope Google Glass and others of its kind are flops. You just know that someone will be stupid enough to try wearing and using something like that while driving if it becomes successful.
